All true, but economies of scale can also get balanced against total aircraft replacement, suddenly that "extra expensive part" might look quite reasonable, when priced against say a brand new Viking Twin Otter at 2019 prices!

Edit: not that the owner of a Colt is really gonna be in the market for a Viking Twotter, but just making a point about parts replacement vs the alternatives

I had a lot of fun with the AN-2 Colt in FS2004, it's a fun aircraft to fly!

Now if it comes to DCS, where the military role is front and center, yea, I'd buy this plane!

As long as it comes with the ability to move equipment and cargo, troops and paratroops, then it will definitely be worthwhile!

Of course I also look forward to the BlackHawk and Hercules too...
